Story continues below galleryShe graduated from Wayne Hills High School in 1990 and opened her shop seven years later. She is engaged to be married, and has two sons: Colby, 15, and Logan, 19.Montaina lives in the same home she was raised in on Manor Drive, a dead-end block, about 500 feet west of the corner of Alps Road and Hamburg Turnpike. "We never really had a neighborhood," she said. "We just had our street. So, it's nice to go to all of these other neighborhoods."Montaina said she had a surplus of flowers in stock, partly because customers canceled parties last month to obey demands for "social distancing." As of Tuesday, she said, she still had plenty of flowers to last through the end of the week.A story of survival: 'I’m not dead and each day is slightly better:' The story of a senior coronavirus survivorMore Wayne news: Woman, 29, dies in Route 23 crash after striking dump truckMontaina said she did not consider saving the flowers until the governor's order is lifted because they no longer would be fresh enough to sell. And, simply letting them go bad was not an option either."What good does that do?" Montaina said."It's not going to give anyone hope," she added. "It's not going to make anyone smile. It would be such a waste, when so many people could use that one little pick-me-up that might make them go out and do something for someone else."Philip DeVencentis is a local reporter for NorthJersey.com.

A Flower Display in Burlington Honored the COVID-19 Dead - Seven DaysWednesday, March 31, 2021
Vermonters who have died from COVID-19 since the disease struck the state nearly a year ago. "It often feels like we're just talking about numbers and tallies," said creator Jayson Munn, a florist who mainly works weddings and other events. "I thought this was a great opportunity to do it in the public square." Burlington was one of about 80 cities nationwide that hosted an art installation as part of the Floral Heart Project. Created by New York City-based artist Kristina Libby, the idea was to designate March 1 as a national day of mourning to publicly grieve those "lost to and suffering from COVID-19." As of Tuesday, more than 515,000 Americans have died. Munn said one woman he talked to had lost her husband to the disease. She told him that visiting the flower memorial had been the first time she'd publicly grieved his death; both she and Munn "started bawling," he said. He gave her a rose. "It was a really touching, touching moment," Munn said. Daniel "D.J." Boyd of Wilmington was walking down Church Street when he saw a crowd by the display and thought, Gee, only in Burlington do you see a bunch of roses in the street and everyone just walking around taking pictures. Boyd walked over himself and read the sign that Munn had erected explaining the display, "and it just struck me," he said. His uncles, twins Leon and Cleon Boyd, had died of COVID-19 early last April, just six days apart. "It's amazing," Boyd said of the display. "It's a good gesture. It puts it into perspective, you know?" Boyd walked over to Munn and told him he'd lost his uncles. Munn picked up two long-stemmed roses from the bricks, and then handed them to Boyd. https://www.sevendaysvt.com/vermont/a-flower-display-in-burlington-honored-the-covid-19-dead/Content?oid=32450871
